    @ goasiatravel,

    Yes, its not possible to view via browser. It seem's you don't have root access. So, ask your prvoider for further assistance.

    it's bad idea to do this through web browser. it's better to do it through shell.

    This will give you list of files, which are older than 30 days.
    This will delete files, which are older than 30 days.

    Hello :)

    Yes, as mentioned, it's likely a better idea to delete these files via the command line (SSH) or through FTP. You may experience memory limitations when attempting to load that many files via File Manager.

    Thank you.
